Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for the question. This is not something that we can do for him I’m afraid because it has to be done face-to-face. Some solicitors will do it for 5 pounds and others will want £25 or even more.
Nonetheless, any solicitor should do it because it’s simply a case of looking at the photograph and confirming that it is a true likeness. They don’t have to verify the identity, just the true likeness.
If he is near to a land registry office, he can just go into the land registry office and they will do it for free.
He cannot be compelled to use a solicitor to submit the documentation.
The transfer deed TR1 can be witnessed by anyone but preferably not relative.
If you could please rate my service five stars (even if it’s not the answer you wanted) that would be really helpful. If you have any further questions you want to ask on this subject, I am happy to deal with those for you.
